Hello everyone,

Does anyone know if the patch creation tool ever worked in Package Studio? We've had all version since 5.6 and it never worked for us. Even a completeley simple task like just adding a file to an installation of a previously repackaged app just generates a patch that does nothing. Upgradesync tells me everythings fine (of course everything else remains unchanged) and the patchlog just says that it cannot make a small patch for the new file and instead will include the whole file - so far so good. Wenn I deploy the patch it just does nothing else than finish successfully. The file itself is contained in a new component in a new feature. When I do the same thing in AdminStudio it just works, problem is we have only Package Studio licensed.

The file in question is a font file TCTELEX.TTF

From the patch.log
TCTELEX.TTF1; Installed: Absent; Request: Null; Action: Null
File = TCTELEX.TTF1: Final State = Install
Should'nt the request be Install?

And when uninstalling the now patched package via control it will now only remove the shortcuts and leave everything else on the computer (registry keys and files).

Has anyone had simliar problems?

Patch creation works just fine for me and always has.

I wouldn't regard adding a new file as the job of a patch, though. But, whatever floats your boat...

What does a verbose log show when you apply the patch?
